POPCORN ESCHATON 1
Popcorn Eschaton is a podcast in which two spiritual seekers attempt to enlighten themselves through film. Hosts Scott Thorough and John Arminio discuss movies dealing with spiritual subjects and themes, while also focusing on anti-colonial and leftist political topics. Music, philosophy, friendship, and what gives life meaning are all fair game. WE LOVE ART, BABY! Logo designed by Jesse Arnold ( music is "Sun Blood" by Oxeneers ( the first episode of Popcorn Eschaton, Scott and John tackle a pair of Jesus Movies: Martin Scorsese's 'The Last Temptation of Christ' and Abel Ferrara's 'Mary.' Topics include what makes Scorsese's film so different from other movies on the life of Christ, why that makes it so meaningful, and how Ferrara's 'Mary' provides a "through a glass darkly" vision of attempting to make spiritual art in a mass media marketplace.
